My interests include photography and other creative subjects such as art and textiles. I am an avid blogger, running two of my own on different platforms, one of which focuses on general interests and creative influence and the other focussing more on personal travels, experiences, recipes and events. I am a social media fanatic, using platforms such as Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram constantly, daily. My ideal role would be in the media industry, developing skills in an area I am passionate about. I love to bake and cook, in my first week at The FA I was awarded the title of winner for the first official FA Bake Off by Roy Hodgson.Locked Pro Plan feature
